Is it a dip … a sauce … a condiment? Whatever you end up calling it, this nacho cheese sauce is incredibly versatile. Dip raw veggies or chips in it. Drizzle it warmed on top of steamed broccoli, cauliflower, or a medley of roasted vegetables. This recipe would make a great cheezy pasta sauce, tossed with cooked macaroni, topped with bread crumbs and baked until crispy. Got some left over? You could also try it on pizza, burritos, or gooped onto a burger or tofu dog. No idea is a bad one with this sauce.

  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked in 2 cups water for 2-4 hours, drained and rinsed

Made this tonight and it was awesome! I did not have peppers or chilis so I subbed a 1/2 cup of salsa. Even my non vegan hubby was very impressed! Thanks!
